Life's Not Fair - The Proof by Scenery

I have noted before how it can't be justifiable, under one or several desserts-based theories of justice, that I should live within a half-hour drive of Multnomah Falls and nearby sites, and likewise it can't be fair that I should live within a 2-1/2 hour drive of Newport, Oregon, where I took these photos in recent days.
